is a screening of the fascinating documentary "Voices from El Sayed,"
introduced by Professor Sharrona Pearl. In the middle of the Negev desert in
Israel, Bedouins have lived in an isolated village for hundreds of years. It's
the only place in the world where the deaf population is almost 10% of the
community, due to a congenital defect. No hearing aids can be seen because in
this village, deafness is not a handicap. What happens when modernity enters
this place in the form of the Cochlear Implant that can make people hear?
